    Registration Dilemma - No engine serial # on receipt

    Howard and I discussed this topic before I went through the registration process; got me paranoid so when I went for registration I produced literally every receipt I had down to the last nut/bolt I ordered from McMaster. It made the pinch at payment time a little more painful but since my...

    Joel - yeah, I was on the fence about doing one too but the trailer we have makes it difficult to drive onto so we figured towing would be mandatory. The front overhang is pretty long so pulling on something like the rear diffuser would drive the front splitter into the ground, no bueno. If...

    Yeah, a real bummer. I have some ideas on what it could be, just need time to get down to the garage and check it all out. Unfortunately Race Studio doesn't let you create your own custom gauges, you pull from the ones they have and you can change the data fields. Of the ones available, I...

    Some developments ... It seems with the cooler weather my car has tended to want to stall out more when coming to idle while stopping - I'm not sure if there's any relation to the weather or if my car is "re-learning" itself some bad manners since my tune. Note that I also have a Dakota...

    Registration Dilemma - No engine serial # on receipt

    Could be - I bought the “Pace Peformance” LS376/525. When I asked, I was told they start out with the 430hp crate motor and swap the cams out to the 525 version. It was ~$1k cheaper than the 525 crate from GM at the time I bought it...

    Registration Dilemma - No engine serial # on receipt

    There's a normal place for it on the block, I did a bunch of searches online - here's an example: https://ls1tech.com/forums/lt1-lt4-modifications/915611-vin-numbers.html This may only apply to engines originally mated to full up vehicles. I scanned my entire block and found zero etched...

    Mahlon - some photos of the extended footbox in Joel's build thread; think he also does a walk-around in one of his youtube videos. I don't recall seeing photos of pedals installed into a chassis with the extended footbox yet but hopefully someone who's got that setup can post a pic.

    I started an instagram account some time ago and have been going through, posting photos here and there from the start to finish of this build. I just made my last build post today - phew! It’s a super condensed look of the entire build. If anyone on here is into IG, check it out. I’m not...

    SLC Body Fitment

    Hah - you got it Rich! ;) For what it's worth, I don't think the discussion we had here was a bad thing, and I really don't think the derail was in a negative direction. The original question was relatively straightforward and it could have been answered in one sentence. Instead, we got a...

    SLC Body Fitment

    Mike - no disrespect taken. I just want to make sure if you jump into this that you do so eyes wide open. I’ve been following the forum for a few years now and the few folks I’ve spoken to who were unhappy with their outcome were disappointed because (I believe) there was a misalignment...

    SLC Body Fitment

    Mike - it's not really my place to talk about your motivations for wanting to do the project, but if you're having second thoughts about constructing an SLC because of (relatively) minor body fitment issues, gelcoat color options and the costs associated with paint, knocking off portions of the...

    Mark's GT-R Build

    Wow, I'm totally gutted. I'd spoken with Mark a few times while building my SLC and he was great part of this community. My condolences to his family.

    SLC Body Fitment

    I cover the a-pillar issue pretty heavily in my blog. I was able to get it looking pretty good for someone who’s never touched fiberglass before I started this project. A pro guy like Dan can get it perfect. If your composite skills are up to the level of someone’s like Dan then you can...

    SLC Body Fitment

    Mike - it’s hard to gauge how sensitive you are/would be to things that don’t quite line up perfectly. I have a pretty extreme level of OCD and I really had to put it in check - I just didn’t/don’t have the skill level to finish this type of project to a level that would be considered OEM...

    Thanks guys - appreciate the kind feedback! If there's anything in particular someone wants to see send it over and I'll see if I can put something together. I don't really intend to make too many more videos, it's just not my thing. But it's been fun and I think more SLC content in the world...

    An interesting discovery this weekend - Using an old school Radio Shack SPL meter my SLC cabin measures 100-101 dB at 60, 70, and 80 mph. It seems to be vehicle speed and engine RPM independent - but I find driving at 60mph much more pleasant than at 80mph. It must be the frequency of the...

    Dan's Build

    Any visible rubbing between the nose and front splitter? What about contact points between your spider and the footbox? I've had one weird issue where I thought a noise was coming from the front - but after I chased it down it was coming from the back. Turns out the sound was really sharp and...

    SL-C Nose Hinge Group Buy

    I’d be down to give it a shot. I’m anticipating some front end rework in my future and this would definitely be a nice feature to add, it sucks having to have a second hand to lift the nose off for troubleshooting (I’ve done that a lot in my first 1000 miles). Put me down for a set with the...

    SL-C Nose Hinge Group Buy

    Scott - The body side pickup point for the gas strut ties to the fiberglass portion of the spider. I assumed you had a spacer between the footbox and glass? My memory is that I placed a stack of washers between the body and the footbox at this location but I may be misremembering. Or maybe...
